Both points taken. I’d agree that on the GTS with the upgrades you’ve done on the front, rear discs are probably not necessary. Similarly on a Lux which performs ok as is then it’s not worth it. Though I’d say you definitely feel when you don’t have enough as was in my case. The front bias is heavily noticeable. They perform well but you just can’t expect the fronts to be pulling up all the weight, quickly prompting the ABS to kick in exactly how sideways described it.
In a real world scenario, the rear drums are always out of adjustment it’s just a constant hassle especially if you travel off bitumen.
Having confidence in your braking setup is really important. I no longer get that tense feeling especially in the wet as it just pulls up as it should.
As far as the rear disc conversion goes I’m pretty sure we can agree through the experience I’ve had and the knowledge of you both, that it would be a superior setup and pretty much tick the boxes. It is night and day difference trust me.
The only issue, again I’m sure we agree, is the cost. It is expensive! It was for me, but I’ve mentioned why I did it (even before the pulley upgrades,ecu tune and TRD CAI which I’m itching for. You lucky bastards [emoji23])
If sideways manages to pull of that setup, I’d tip my hat off to him and I’m sure he will be very happy with it.
